Part of the BBC Proms. Following Beethoven's ?Choral' Symphony on the opening night of the London Olympics (Prom 18), the closing night sees another choral blockbuster. Schoenberg's medieval love-tragedy is an early masterpiece in which his late-Romantic voluptuousness attains a radiant C major sunrise apotheosis. Augmenting substantial BBC forces, Jiri Belohlavek welcomes two guest choirs. An impressive international solo line-up is headed by New Zealand tenor Simon O'Neill as Waldemar, the cursed king. German soprano Angela Denoke makes her Proms debut as Tove and Swedish mezzo-soprano Katarina Karneus returns as the voice of the Wood-Dove. There will be no interval. Finish time approx. 21:50Performers Angela Denoke (soprano), Simon O'Neill (tenor/Waldemar), Katarina Karneus (mezzo soprano/Wood-Dove), Jeffrey Lloyd-Roberts (tenor/Klaus the Fool), Neal Davies (bass-baritone/Peasant), Wolfgang Schone (speaker).
